Basing a query on a session variable

I developed a page that displays data from an SQL server database. I have a session variable that identifies the user.

How can I use this variable in a where clause. The ASP code is all generated by FrontPage.

You can modify the script that the the DRW uses to create the query to process values other than Request.Form or Request.QuerySting. You can also modify the same script to use a Session object, Application Object or Request Objects (Form, QueryString, ServerVariables, Cookies, Certificates), as follows;

Tools... Web Settings... Advanced...Show documents in hidden directories.
Open _fpclass/fpdbrgn1.inc
Find the line of code in the file about 1/3rd the way down, in the 'replace any input parameters in query string' section;
 
if len(fp_sValue) = 0 then fp_sValue = Request.QueryString(fp_sField)

Add one (or all) of these lines immediately below;
 
if len(fp_sValue) = 0 then fp_sValue = Session(fp_sField)
if len(fp_sValue) = 0 then fp_sValue = Application(fp_sField)
if len(fp_sValue) = 0 then fp_sValue = Request(fp_sField)

Use a custom DRW to query on the object by it's name. For example, use a Session Login ID (e.g. customernumber) or the Windows Logon Username (e.g. LOGON_USER) in a query;
SELECT * FROM TableName WHERE CustomerNumber = '::customernumber::'
SELECT * FROM TableName WHERE Username = '::LOGON_USER::'

FrontPage isn't going to do this for you. You're going to have to edit the code yourself.

Hi alexandram,

The easiest way is to post the session variable that identifies the user to the page that displays the data and then add the field into the criteria for that data. This way the query will build itself.

So when the user clicks a buttom to display the data his name is also sent along.

Or

If you wish to edit the query yourself you will need to post your data as stated by the others!!!!.

PigoPigo, it's standard procedure here to post comments, and allow the poster to decide if it's a valid answer or not. Since they haven't been back in 3 months, it's likely they either don't know how to edit/view the code, or they've forgotten about the question (or both).

And besides...
they're using FrontPage. It's highly unlikely that they'll even understand one iota of what you posted. ;-)
